I bought my gaming console to play games, not watch movies. But I was confronted with two similar systems with similar games, but one system had blu-ray.... so I chose PS3.

I never got into Gran Turismo... I kind of think the physics engine is poorly designed, but yet its is something the developers pride them selves on. Why do cars spin tires going 10 mph in the grass? When I drive my truck in my back yard I don't spin tires, in fact I can get to high speeds such as 50+ pretty quickly. try geting to 50+ in the dirt on GT...
I am amazed sony has gotten away with the "It only does everything" trademark. It doesn't do everything, it won't play PS2 like the original ps3. Now, they're taking away the Other OS feature which was advertised with the original PS3 too. Seriously, they'll soon be selling an empty box claiming that it does everything. lol Anyways, no hard feelings about the OS stuff. I have linux on my PS3 but never use it. I was hoping to us it for Hulu, but Flash incompatibility prevents that. So really, its a waste to have linux on there anyways.
GT always have beautiful graphics, but I've always felt that the game failed to represent real driving. If you run off the road, you can't go more than just a 10mph or so cause when you press the accelerator your tires spin out. In real life when I drive in my back fields I can easily go 50-80 without ever spining tires. It just seems weird to me.
I don't see people going out and buying a PS3 just for the Move. If people want motion controls I suspect they'll just stick with Wii cause its cheaper. A lot of the games they showed were just sports party games, so I agree with gamespots review above that it didn't show enough cool uses of the Move. About the only way I think a company could be successful with motion controls is to include them right from the beginning as the primary controller, like the wii did. Requiring people people to buy these extra controllers for a small selection of party games, and in some cases two controllers (for motion fighters) or a sub controller (for socom 4), I just don't think will catch on.
So far, I don't think the precision is too impressive. When he was playing motion fighters he was throwing punches and even performed the spin move but it failed to do the actions in game. It appears comparable to the Wii Motion Plus. And even more disturbing is that you have to buy TWO moves to play some games.
